Empty Bowl Project Date Announced

The date for the Empty Bowl Project has been set and we're planning some additions to the menu with some new restaurants added this coming year. The event will be held on March 21,2010 in the lobby of the Akron Art Museum. More details will be coming in December with Early Bird Registration available January 1, 2010.

The premise of the Empty Bowl Project is simple: Guests are served soup in a handmade ceramic bowl in exchange for a cash donation to fight hunger. Keep the bowl as a reminder of the meal's purpose. Every time you take the bowl from your cupboard, you will be reminded that someone's bowl is always empty, and that on this one occasion you helped to alleviate hunger. You could choose to do so again at anytime.

All money collected will be donated to Good Samaritan Hunger Center to fight hunger, to raise awareness about the issues of hunger and to help bring about an attitude that will not let hunger exist. A remarkable collective effort is put forward by all the people involved. It is our hope that the Empty Bowl Project becomes a powerful tool for bringing about positive change locally.
